Introduction to chicken tractors

Chicken tractor

We firmly believe that automatic chicken waterers and chicken tractors go hand in hand since they both keep your chickens happy and healthy.  Every time we see chickens in a conventional coop setting, we cringe, but we realize that it can be a bit daunting for first-timers to build a chicken tractor from scratch.  It's really not so hard, though, and can be surprisingly cheap --- Mark built our most recent chicken tractor for under $20.

During the three years that we've lived on the farm, Mark has built five chicken tractors.  In the process, he's learned a lot, documenting most of that information on our homesteading blog.  I'm going to be summarizing the most relevant bits of information from that blog on this blog over the next month or so.  Now is the perfect time to start thinking about next year's chickens.  Why not curl up with a hot cup of cocoa and plan a chicken tractor while you're at it?
